values with the tenets and promise of egypt that barack obama himself articulated brilliantly in his cairo speech in june, 2009. the egyptians, arabs, the international community is waiting for the president of the united states to be faithful to that promise of that speech. so i think the administration is trying not to scare its other ale lies in the region. i spoke with diplomats from the gulf state and other arab states. they were extremely concerned. some of them stated fright. what would happen to them in case of the regime in the arab world, our allies in the united states are swept away from enthusiasm in the streets. so the administration needs to be cognizant of what they will do in egypt and how it will reverberate throughout the middle east. >> who has the most to fear? >> well, the syrian regime which is more oppressive than mubarak. it has been ruled for 40 years. jordan should be concerned. the main concern of the gulf states is yemen. yemen is not egypt. it is not homogeneous. there are many tribal, ethnic, sectarian cleavages that they could exploit to prevent people
